After missing Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals vs. the Heat, the Celtics announced guard Malcolm Brogdon will return for the crucial Game 7 on Monday night, per The Athletic.

The 2023 NBA Sixth Man of the Year will return to the team as the Celtics play in front of a home crowd at TD Garden. 

Brogdon has played limited minutes since he suffered a right forearm strain during Game 1 on May 17. He scored 19 points in Game 1 and then 13 points in Game 2, but then only made one basket during the next three games as he dealt with the injury. He ended up feeling too sore ahead of Saturday’s Game 6 and was scratched from the lineup.

If the Celtics win on Monday night to advance to the NBA Finals, the team will be the first team in league history to win a series after being down 3–0.
